When you see a neighborhood for the first time, the most important thing
is often the way it looks, like its homes and its setting. Some places look
the same, but they only reveal their true character after living in them for
a while because they contain a unique mix of occupational or cultural groups.
This neighborhood is very unique in some important ways, according to
NeighborhoodScout's exclusive exploration and analysis.
Notable & Unique: Diversity
Did you know that the Poston / Bluewater neighborhood has more
Native American ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 37.0% of
this neighborhood's residents have Native American ancestry.
Poston / Bluewater is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 1.2% of its residents five years old and above primarily
speak Native American languages at home. While this may seem like a small percentage, it is higher
than 98.7% of the neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: Occupations
It used to be that most Americans lived on the farm, or otherwise made their
living from the land, the forests, or the sea. With global trade and an
economy increasingly based on providing services to one another, fewer
people farm, fish or harvest timber now than at any time in American history.
But according to NeighborhoodScout's leading analysis, the
Poston / Bluewater neighborhood stands apart from most American neighborhood due
to the proportion of its residents still working in these fields. With 16.2%
of the workforce so employed, this neighborhood has a greater concentration
of such workers than 99.4% of U.S. neighborhoods.
Furthermore, the government often provides some of the more stable jobs in the economy.
From local, to state, to federal government workers, the government can
also be a major employer. What NeighborhoodScout's analysis revealed, is
that the Poston / Bluewater neighborhood in particular stands out
when compared nationally for the proportion of its working residents who
are employed by the government. At 15.5% of its workforce, this
neighborhood has a greater concentration of government workers than
97.3% of U.S. neighborhoods.
Notable & Unique: Length of Commute
Regardless of the means by which residents commute, this neighborhood has
a length of commute that is notable.
Residents of the Poston / Bluewater neighborhood have the pleasure
of having one of the shortest commutes to work of any neighborhood in
America. 67.9% of the residents have a commute time from
home to work (one way) of less than fifteen minutes. This is a higher
proportion of residents enjoying a short trip to work than NeighborhoodScout
found in 97.8% of U.S. neighborhoods. Less time commuting
means more time for other things in life.
Notable & Unique: Real Estate
This neighborhood has wide open spaces, few people, and lots of space to stretch out. If you like locations that fit that description, you may like this neighborhood. Based on NeighborhoodScout's exclusive analysis, with only 10.42 people per square mile living here, this neighborhood is less crowded than 97.1% of America.
In addition, the real estate in this neighborhood consists of more mobile homes than 98.6% of all neighborhoods in America, with 44.1% of the occupied housing here being classified as mobile homes. So if you are looking for a mobile home, or you like the look and feel of mobile home parks, this neighborhood might have the setting you desire.
Notable & Unique: People

living in the Poston / Bluewater neighborhood.
